space tripping to the land of many moons

there are many moons circling
my next destination
or so I’ve been told
by the voice inside my head

it’s like a carnival game down there
grenade launcher in hand
pockmarking the moons
one by one
expecting a prize at the end

there is no dark matter
in this place
yet there are plenty of stars
pulsating beyond the many moons
and when the tide is right
I promise to relay you
postcards from there

may two thousand sixteen

  1. When exploring space becomes exploding space it shows the worst part of humanity.

  2. “like a carnival game down there” ..dreadful and funny at the same time.
